With all the stress in the world lately, it is important to always remember to take care of yourself. One of the best ways of doing that is making time for self-care. And what better way to care for yourself than a stay at home spa day?
Not only can you save money, but you also won’t have to leave the comfort of your home! Here are our favorite tips and recipes for a successful stay-at-home spa day.
Some times, the simpler the better. If your hair is dry or damaged, a few drops of oil a day can go a long way. All our Enhydro oils contain the powerful sea buckthorn seed oil. This oil is high in fatty acids like omega 3. Omega 3 may be able to prevent split ends and improve dullness and breakage in hair. Applying a few drops of the Enhydro Oil to your hands then working it through your hair is a quick way to pamper your hair with the nutrients it deserves.
Best Oil for the Job
When it comes to hair oils, we recommend our Calm Oil as the perfect all-over hair mask. Our Calm oil contains lavender oil. This oil can soothe the skin of an irritated scalp. Lavender oil may also be able to promote hair growth. Calm also contains apricot oil, which contains oleic acid. This improves the softness and shine in your hair. On top of that, our Calm Oil is infused with the relaxing scent of lavender. This makes it the perfect oil for a spa day staycation!
Hair Mask Recipes
For a special stay-at-home spa day, we recommend you try a hair mask. It gives you enough time to kick back and binge a few episodes of your favorite shows while treating your hair. Anyone of our Enhydro Facial Oil Serum oils can be used in these recipes to create the perfect hair mask.
While we love the many benefits of our Calm Oil, our Glow Oil and Revive Oil can also be used for these quick DIY recipes. No matter what oil you choose, any one of these hair masks is sure to make your hair look and feel amazing. Here are some of our favorite DIY hair mask recipes
De-Frizz Hair Mask
For this mask, you will need an Enhydro Oil of your choosing as well as a ripe banana and some Honey. Enhydro oils offer natural hydration, along with honey which helps to smoothen hair.
Bananas are rich in potassium, which helps strengthen and heal damaged hair. Altogether, these ingredients make a powerful mask sure to keep frizz at bay.
Start with the banana, peeled and chopped, then puree it in a blender. Next, add two droppers full of Enhydro Oil and blend again to get a smooth consistency. Finish with one tablespoon of honey. Wash your hair and apply the mixture on damp strands, focusing on the ends. Cover with a shower cap, leave it on for 30 minutes. Finally, rinse and condition your hair.
Strengthen and Nourish Hair Mask
For this mask, grab the Enhydro Oil of your choosing along with one egg and some greek yogurt. While it may sound odd, eggs are great for your hair! Eggs are packed with proteins that help strengthen hair.
These proteins also help prevent breakage and split ends. The yolk of the egg, combined with the yogurt, helps to nourish and moisturize hair naturally. Our Enhydro Oils are the perfect way to bring these ingredients together. The Enhydro Oils contain nutrient-rich fatty acids to ensure strong and replenished hair.
Start by mixing all ingredients in a bowl with a whisk. Then apply the mixture to clean, dampened hair. A wide-tooth comb can help distribute the product through your hair. Leave the mask on for 20 minutes, then rinse away the treatment, and let your hair air-dry.
Hair Growth Mask
For this mask, you will only need two ingredients. Our Enhydro Oil, and some ground cinnamon. Cinnamon has antimicrobial properties that help your hair grow, helps with dandruff, and strengthens your hair. Cinnamon also contains capsaicin, which can stimulate circulation to the scalp. This improves blood flow to the hair follicles and can lead to hair growth.
To start, combine two droppers full of the Enhydro Oil of your choice with one teaspoon of cinnamon. Then, combine the two in a bowl, mixing well. Finally, apply to your hair. Start by applying it directly to the scalp, and use your fingertips to massage the product in. Then apply through the rest of your hair. Tie your hair up and cover with a shower cap. Let this mask sit for 45 minutes before rinsing with shampoo and conditioner.
Manicure and Pedicure
Of course, no spa day would be complete without a mani-pedi! When it’s time to do your nails, remember to always use cuticle oil. Cuticle oils are an important part of the manicure and pedicure process. Keeping cuticles hydrated with oil leads to healthy nail growth. Another benefit of using cuticle oil is its ability to help strengthen your nails.
When to Apply Cuticle Oil
The best way to let your nails absorb nutrients from the oil is by applying it last. Start with clean, dry nails. Next, prep your nails with a strengthening base coat. Afterward, you can liven up your nails with a fun, bright polish. Finally, seal in the polish with a topcoat. Once your manicure is complete, you can finish your pampering by applying the cuticle oil.
The Perfect Oil for the Job
Our recommendation for a great cuticle oil is our Enhydro Glow Oil. This oil contains our famous seaberry seed oil, which is rich in Omegas 3 and 6. Glow also contains powerful nutrients and antioxidants, which absorb quickly into the skin. Our Glow Oil contains almond oil, an oil-rich in vitamin E. Vitamin E is well-known for having nail benefitting qualities. These include its ability to help prevent nails peeling and cracking, as well as cuticle dryness. Glow also is rich in coconut and avocado oils. These oils help to moisturize and hydrate the nail beds and cuticles. Our Enhydro Glow oil is also infused with the scent of rich European rose. This magical aroma is sure to transform any home to a five-star spa resort!
Night Time Face Mask
To complete your stay-at-home spa day, we recommend using Enhydro Facial Oils as a nighttime mask. Simply pat a few drops in over the top of your regular nighttime skincare products.
It's best to apply face oils last, according to estheticians, because it can help seal in your other night-time products. It is also important that you do not rub the oil in, as a patting motion helps the oil absorb into the skin better.
For a thicker nighttime mask, mix four drops of your facial oil in with your moisturizer. This can be worn to bed during times when you need deeper hydration and a more radiant glow.
Best oil for the Job
All our Enhydro Oils make great night time masks, depending on your skin type. However, we especially recommend our Revive Oil for this purpose. Our Revive oil includes jojoba, an oil known for its incredible moisturizing abilities. Jojoba oil has special properties that help seal moisture in the skin.
Revive also contains frankincense, which is famous for its wrinkle-fighting abilities as well as its use in deterring acne-causing bacteria. Since Revive is a richer, thicker oil it is the perfect oil for a nighttime mask.
